To many, the Hasidic world is shrouded in mystery and secrecy—well, not anymore. On this experience you get to see first hand the daily lives, rituals and customs of the Hasidic community, guided by a member of the community.

Then its off to the streets of Crown Heights, starting with exploring the world famous “770” Synagogue, getting a glimpse into the hustle and bustle of daily prayer services. Next stop is a Jewish scribe, seeing up close the intricate details involved in producing the Torah Scrolls. Followed by a walk down the avenue, visiting the local shops, and seeing the traditions dating back to the early 1800’s. The experience continues rain, snow or shine (just come prepared).

Play with miniature goats
In an hour-long experience, visitors will meet and play with this year's babies, who are now rowdy pre-teens. These babies are bonded to humans and will climb all over you. Near the end of the hour, visitors are welcome to visit the rest of the goats and I'll be happy to answer any questions they might have about goat life. WHAT TO EXPECT BY SEASON: Spring: Babies are brand new, still on the bottle. Summer: Older babies are weaned and getting a little rowdy. Fall: The babies are tweens now, getting bigger but still snugglers. (Don't see a date that works for you? Drop me a message and let's see if we can't make another day work.) Other things to note: You will get dirty and covered in animal hair! There will be poop! Babies can get a bit crazy so be prepared for some adorable chaos.
Pasta class with an Italian
“Life is a combination of magic and pasta” Federico Fellini Both the hosts are covid 19 vaccinated (booster included) I will sanitize the workspace and restroom space prior to the class, but keep in mind there is only one bathroom. Do you want to know how to cook a real fresh Italian pasta with all the tricks that made Italy the country of Pasta? I’m going to teach you all the knowledge that my family (especially my grandmother) passed down to me since I was very little. We are going to start off with touching and knowing the right ingredients (imported from Italy), and then get ready to get your hands really dirty! We are going to prepare two kinds of pasta: tortelli filled with fresh local ricotta and spinach, and tagliatelle. While mixing with your hands, we cheers with unlimited wine to good food and good company! While we are waiting for the pasta dough to rest we will enjoy a real Italian aperitivo with a charcuterie board. Salute! This experience can be vegetarian friendly. This class can’t be suitable for Gluten Free or Vegan. To finish off the evening we are going to dine with your just made fresh pasta. PS: since the wine is unlimited, it is our responsibility to make sure that everyone is safe. Therefore if we believe someone is too intoxicated, we will stop serving that individual.

Art Therapy at a NYC Museum
ADMISSION TICKET TO MOMA & (PACK OF 4) PALO SANTO IS INCLUDED Have you ever wanted to de-stress and get a visual representation of your emotions when seeing the best art at a museum? Well you will be able to do that in this one of a kind museum visit. Join me on a museum visit to MoMA on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays where I'll guide you in becoming mindful of your emotions and how each work of art that you see makes you feel by sketching it out on your very own work of art. Will start by de-stressing. Will identify what your stress/negativity feels like in the middle of your artwork. Then will question what your stress/negativity looks like. You will be using specific line qualities for your artwork based on the emotions you chose. Does it have a certain shape, texture? This may be what your inner emotions look like but there is a much larger external experience that may have a positive effect. Like the art you see! Will then divide your artwork into at least 8 spaces. You will use the color therapy instructions to identify which colors to use based on how each art makes you feel and the line quality instructions based on the emotions you chose that identify your stress/negativity. Friday, Saturday, Sunday sessions will be at MoMA; Admission Ticket to MoMA is included in this Experience.

Some even have all the drinks still in tea cups in case the police would raid them back in 1920's and was featured in the TV show Boardwalk Empire for its historical accurate decor and atmosphere. We provide historical facts by history teachers with educational and tour guide licenses. Our facts are solely from cross referenced academic sources. We furthermore work in conjunction NYC City Hall and the NYC Hall of Records to ensure the authenticity of the historical claims by each establishment we visit.
